Injured patients and/or the family or estate representative of a deceased patient, may be entitled to compensation for the harm suffered by patients injured by medical malpractice. Medical malpractice injuries can vary from very minor injuries to severe or permanent damage, or even wrongful death. Each year, thousands of patients die as the result of medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice can be very complicated for both patients and medical malpractice attorneys. There are many traps that patients may fall into if they try to deal with hospitals or insurance companies on their own. One of the best ways to protect your rights may be to hire a medical malpractice lawyer who can look out for your best interests and see that you can recover all the damages you may be entitled to.
After suffering medical malpractice, you may have a legal right to recover monetary damages. These damages may be for injuries to yourself or your loved one, and damages may not have to be physical for you to be able to recover. Some of those damages may include:
- Medical Bills
- Pain and Suffering
- Permanent Disability
- Loss of wages or future income
- Loss of services, support, and/or companionship
- Wrongful death
